Gay Men's HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (September,27)

Any efforts for SALT or AI would necessitate empowering of the community .The community must be at the centre in the planning,implementation,monitoring and evaluation of any chalked out activities or project.

Wish to share a statement about the need to ensure the same in the interventions for prevention of HIV amongst the MSM.

Best wishes,

Rajesh Gopal.

Do we need to measure change? Perhaps we should assess our progress.

Recently I was asked for my thoughts about the difference between Appreciative Inquiry (AI) and SALT. There is a mountain of material on AI on the web and I read some of it. As I was going through it, it seemed to me that 2 words that people kept linking with AI were ‘change’ and ‘empower’.

If I were looking for a distinction for what the Constellation does, it would be easy to talk about empower, but I stayed with the idea of ‘change’. Many people claim to be able to make change… Continue

Demandeurs d’asile : ce qu’eux ont à offrir à la Belgique

C’est la question que l’équipe SALT a posé aux résidents du centre de demandeurs d’asile de Beho-Gouvy. Quand on arrive dans un pays et qu’on est demandeur d’asile, on offre ses craintes, ses faiblesses .On se met et on est mis dans une position de faiblesse. Mais un petit changement de regard montre que les demandeurs d’asile ont aussi des forces à offrir à la société belge.

Tout a commencé lors d’un weekend d’échange entre BelCompétence et les résidents du centre Croix-Rouge de Manhay… Continue

Entre deux cultures

Entre deux cultures

J’ai eu un problème de santé, le HPV c’est un virus qui aujourd’hui tue beaucoup de femme dans le monde quand on le découvre trop tard.

Je ne pouvais pas en parler à ma mère car je ne pouvais assumer ce que je pensais qu’elle allait me dire. Car moi-même, je me sentais responsable de ma maladie ce fût une épreuve difficile.

La raison de ma culpabilité était qu’autant que femme, avoir cette maladie n’était "pas normale" selon le point de vue de la… Continue

The Sun my Heart

I was reading this book 'The sun my heart' of Thich Nhat Hanh this morning while going to work. I was touched by the book as he wrote " ..peace and happiness are the guides for measuring the fruit of practice {meditation}. If we do not become calmer and happier, something is wrong with our practice" So in meditation there is self measurement of change as we do in AIDS competence. And I think we can measure peace as a practice of ACP. See… Continue

Gangs - who say they are bad?

Recognizing naturally emerging leaders of gangs and transforming their leadership abilities as change agents and role models then we make behavior change happen in their spheres of influence.

What I see and what I hear,

from my peers, I hold them dear

feel strong when they are near

to face the risk with no more fear

................Excerpted from a poem entitled "the risk gangs hold dear" by JohnPierre

Gangs are self-formed groups of peers that are… Continue

A clinical trial: through the eyes of the community

I recently had an opportunity to view a film about a clinical trial on DVD. The Development of Anti-retroviral therapy (DART) in Africa trial was a six year clinical trial evaluating how to manage anti-retroviral therapy ART in 3,300 patients with advanced HIV or AIDS in Uganda and Zimbabwe. The trial aimed to find out whether the lab-based strategies used to monitor ART to people with HIV infection in resource rich countries were essential in Africa, where around four million people still need… Continue
